Recently, we spent ten days in California taking our custom Partysaurus Rex up the coast and ending at Pixar Animation Studios in Emeryville. Our journey first began in Michigan to our first stop in sunny San Diego, California – which can be seen here in our previous Partysaurus Rex post.
We met so many wonderful people during our adventure – many of whom recognized us and PartySaurus Rex right away – this warmed our hearts instantly.
We have countless stories from our journey, however the ones that really stick out to us are when kids would run up to us yelling “Partysaurus Rex! Partysaurus Rex!” and it was always followed up with the question “Is that the real Partysaurus Rex?”, which we always replied “Yes!”. There were many Disney family vacation photos that were taken with our Partysaurus Rex on April 25 and 26th.
Below are photos and videos of our custom Partysaurus Rex’s adventures from Anaheim, CA to Emeryville, CA.
Meet-up with the Pizza Planet Truck
While at Joe’s Ice in Garden Grove, California, we met Tyler and Hanni who both recognized Partysaurus Rex immediately and were both so gracious. It was so fun to meet more Partysaurus Rex fans while we were out and about – it’s amazing how recognizable this little guy is.
Disney California Adventure
Our day at Disney’s California Adventure began with a group of our readers calling to us as we walked into the park. They were so excited to see and take pictures with Partysaurus Rex that others continued to approach us as we walked into the park.
After wearing our What Up Fishes?! t-shirt and custom Partysaurus Rex sweatshirt in the Disney parks, we wondered what a Partysaurus Rex-themed rack would look like – so we staged one in the parks. Throughout our two days at Disney, we had many, many guests come up to us asking where to purchase our PartySaurus Rex toy.
The cast members at the Disneyland Emporium were so excited to see PartySaurus Rex. The entire crew came to greet us and they informed us that they watch the Pixar short every day “behind the scenes” before work – it’s their favorite short!
On our way to Santa Barbara, we stopped off in Hollywood to see John Lasseter’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. This was our first time in Hollywood and PartySaurus Rex created quite the buzz as he stood in front of the El Capitan Theater (which is where John Lasseter’s star sits) as the cameras were flashing as if the paparazzi were catching him.
San Francisco and Pixar Animation Studios
Bringing PartySaurus Rex into Pixar Animation Studios was such a joy, we’ll be posting separately about our own experience within the studio soon.
Thank you to everyone who came to say hello to us and PartySaurus Rex during our journey, YOU made this the adventure of a lifetime!
